Jonathan and Eric look at a recent French case involving the Loiseau Des Ducs restaurant in Dijon. A reviewer posted an online review saying the restaurant was:
“Very over-rated, it was all show, there was very little on the plate, and the only thing that was well loaded was the bill.”
His problem? The restaurant had not even opened. Those behind the restaurant tracked him down and issued proceedings. Jonathan and Eric discuss the case and recent enforcement action by Amazon against fake reviews. They also look at wider legal issues – how much are regulators getting involved? Will fair trading and even bribery legislation have a role to play?
